Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World by Adam Grant
Chapters 1-5
Read the first five chapters of the book. Please note the title of the book and the author so that you refer to the author throughout your paper as “Grant” or “Adam Grant” instead of “the author.” Also, note this is not a “novel” as that is a work of fiction. In your papers, refer to the title as Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World for the first mention and you can shorten it to Originals for subsequent referrals. Remember that titles of books are always in italics or underlined, they are not put in quotes, but chapter titles are put inside quotation marks.
In 4-5 pages (typed, double-spaced) reflect on three ideas you personally thought to be “original” in the book, in the sense that they provided new knowledge to you; additionally, you should explain one criticism or limitation of the work with support.
1). Explain the context
2). Discuss relevancy and/or possible applications to this class
3). Share how you might envision these ideas relating to other aspects of your education
*You should discuss these three connections for each of the examples you use—for instance, if you write about procrastination vis-à-vis Grant you should explain how he uses it and what is original about the usage in your opinion, how it can be applied to our class, and how it connects to other aspects of your education.
Your paper should have both introductory and concluding paragraphs and be proofread to omit editing errors. You must cite any information that you use parenthetically in text and provide an attached works cited page including the text and any other sources used. If you use quotes or ideas from Grant you must cite them in your paper. PAPERS WITHOUT CITED INFORMATION WILL NOT RECEIVE ANY CREDIT FOR THIS ASSIGNMENT. If you do not have a copy of the book, but use an audiobook, please note that you will need the text in order to cite page numbers that audiobooks don’t provide—any online version should have pagination. You should have a works cited page.
The paper is due before class on Brightspace Wednesday, September 27. If you do not submit before class on Wednesday, September 27 you will lose 20 points and five points for each day late thereafter. I will not take papers submitted after Wednesday, October 4. If you miss class, you should still submit your paper online.
You should be prepared to share something from your paper or in response to the class discussion we will have on the text that day. You should bring the book to class if you have it or if you do read online take notes so you can access salient points. Grades will be given on your participation/sharing of ideas. If you do not speak or share any ideas (e.g. remain silent) you will not receive credit for that day’s discussion. The more you share, the better you will do with earning participation points for the discussion.
Papers will be graded based on your ability to synthesize information and respond to the question. The papers will be graded holistically and the following rubric provides an idea of grade range.
A papers will show depth of thought, organizational logic, will provide three cogent examples, will include a limitation/critique of the work, will use the name of the book and author’s name correctly, will have multiple citations done correctly, will have a works cited page, and will be the appropriate length (4-5 pages). A papers will be submitted on time and almost entirely error-free. A papers will demonstrate that the student put thought into their analysis and rather than reporting on the book, bring new ideas and questions.
B papers will show depth of thought, organizational logic, will provide three examples but perhaps they don’t fully unpack the choices used, may or may not include a limitation/critique of the work, may or may not use the name of the book and author’s name correctly, will have multiple citations but they may not always be done correctly, may or may not have a works cited page, and may or may not be the appropriate length (4-5 pages). B papers will be submitted on time and almost entirely error-free. B papers will demonstrate that the student put thought into their analysis, but likely there were sections that could have been further developed. For instance, maybe one idea is fully unpacked and another not so much.
C papers complete the assignment but do so with little attention to detail and specificity. The organizational logic might not be apparent and the paper may or may not provide three cogent examples. The C paper may or may not include a limitation/critique of the work and if it does it is likely not fully developed. The C paper may or may not use the name of the book and author’s name correctly, it will have few citations which could be correct, it may or may not have a works cited page, and could be too short in length. C papers may or may not be submitted on time and might include errors. C papers will show the student read some parts of the book and can report on them, but this paper does not really bring in new ideas and questions.
D papers complete the assignment but do so with little attention to detail and specificity. The organizational logic is faulty and the required three cogent examples are not fully developed. The D paper may or may not include a limitation/critique of the work and if it does it is likely not fully developed. The D paper may or may not use the name of the book and author’s name correctly, it will have few citations which could be correct, it will not have a works cited page, and could be too short in length. D papers may or may not be submitted on time and include errors. D papers will show the student read some parts of the book and can report on them, but this paper does not really bring in new ideas and questions.
F papers fail to complete the assignment in any satisfactory way.
